They’re intent on further destroying America’s economy
(Washington Post) Senate Democrats plan to draft a budget blueprint that calls for significantly higher taxes on the wealthy, oil and gas companies and corporations doing business overseas, reopening a battle over taxes Republicans had hoped to lay to rest with the “fiscal cliff.”
Raise taxes on corporations and those companies will pass the costs on to the consumers. It’ll also drive corporations and wealthy out of the country, removing more wealth from the nation. Democrats do not care, as they want money to continue being Big Daddy Government.
For nearly four years, Senate leaders have ducked their legal duty to craft a comprehensive budget framework. Now, however, Democrats see the budget process as “a great opportunity” to pursue additional tax increases — and to create a fast-track process to push them through the Senate, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
On the bright side, there really is little chance there will actually be a budget brought forth. While it could be passed without Republican votes, Harry Reid has never had enough Democrat votes to pass one previously, so hasn’t bothered bringing a budget to the floor.
